“We at Magnus Church of England Academy would like to thank parents who have worked with us this week to achieve the standards of uniform we have set out.  Our uniform policy is very much in line with that of any aspirational secondary school and where problems do arise we are happy to meet and speak to parents about how we can resolve the issue.  We have brand new items of uniform including shoes that can be loaned for short periods or purchased from or through the school.  If you do have any concerns or require assistance please contact your child’s Pastoral Manager in the first instance.

Once again, thank you for your support and I look forward to working with you in the future as we continue to work towards excellence for all and a school that all of the community can be proud of.” – Mrs A Martin, Principal.
